I was playing c&c 3 just now and all of a sudden the monitor signal was lost and this electrical squeal started coming from the system, I then had to turn it off by the power switch. I think it could be my sound card as it blue screened when playing jedi knight 2 a while back (it was a reproducable error caused by a sound card driver) and that had similar symptoms.

Everything has been working fine with it till now. Anyone had similar issues, if it's the sound card I'll just use the onboard I think. Btw it's working ok after as I'm writing this post on the same machine.
